Y’all. The other day I ended up in Target without Jude and totally got sucked in. Target seems to do that, doesn’t it. I had a handful of items (included a navy striped dress and mint colored skinny capris that I haven’t quite stopped thinking about yet) and even tried them on. Then I sat in the dressing room and agonized about whether or not to buy the couple items I thought were cute (remember, I’m an over-thinker). Should I spend the money on new clothes? I could just NOT tell you guys, right? I mean, I did publicly declare my intent to only shop at the thrift store for the year on the blog, but that doesn’t mean I have to tell you everything? Oh but my guilty conscience…
Instead, I put those items back on the rack and went home. Several days later I went to my trusty thrift store and scored these items for LESS than I would have spent on the 3-4 items at Target. That cute little black floral dress on the right? Still had tags on it. And I’m noticing a trend in the style of dress I picked out (boatneck with sleeve and waist cinch?) I am going to have to alter the tank top straps because, um, my shoulder to boob-top ratio seems to be shorter than everyone else. Or manufacturers like to see a lot of what I like to keep covered.
And I totally found a sweet pair of heels. Gotta love the neutral colored ombre and never worn thrifted shoes that are not – 1) too high, 2) stilettos, 3) uncomfortable. Score on all three accounts. Hello date night!
Did you guys catch that there were no stripes in there this time? And I bought something with allover flowers? Who am I?
12 items total: 3 tank tops, 3 shorts, 4 dresses, a skinny belt and a pair of hot mama heels.
